that nike is a hot brand. it's also one of oregon's biggest employers. and now the company is forcing the state's hand saying it wants a 40-year tax deal in exchange for bringing in new jobs or else. cnbc's own brian shactman joins us now with much more. good evening, brian. >> hi, larry. nike is the second biggest employer in the state of oregon. in fact, one of only two fortune 500 companies that have headquarters there. and basically they told the governor they want to expand and if they don't get tax certainty, they are going to be free agents and there are several states trying to poach them. the governor called a special session to pass legislation that says any company, nike, that spend $150 million in new investments over five years could get what they call single sales factor status. i want to explain it to people. that is taxing nike based on in-state sales, not just the combination of sales, real estate value and payroll taxes. it's an absolutely sweet deal for nike. whether it's 40 years or five years, it's going to be in between that range. but it shows you how important
's similar to the type of gun used in the shooting on tuesday at a phalg outside of portland, oregon. now, lanza's older brother ryan is still being questioned by police who want to know what he might have known about that attack. sources say at this point-- and they emphasize at this point-- he's not a suspect. investigators say they believe the killing spree began at the home adam lanza shared with his mother who, as we told you, was a kindergarten teacher at sandy hill because, scott, service found dead in the home. >> pelley: bob, thank you. cbs news senior correspondent john miller is a former assistant director of the f.b.i. and john has been talking to his law enforcement sources today. john, there have now been two deadly shootings this week, the other at a shopping mall in oregon earlier. including the one there, what have we learned from them this week? >> well, this is the kind of thing, scott, that always puts the profilers who study the offender characteristics of these shooters on alert. they're worried about what they call the werther effect. it's a copy cat mechanism and t
trying to wrap my head around the mass shooting that happened in oregon earlier this week. when i saw this morning that this had happened, i sunk in my chair. you really cannot do justice to what these kids and what these teachers have just experienced." in the classroom where colin goddard was shot at virginia tech, there were 17 people in that classroom. only seven of them survived. two dozen kids were shot and wounded in a high school cafeteria in springfield, oregon in 1998. 1998. the police chief there now, who was a first responder that horrible day at that oregon high school 14 years ago said today about newtown, "i know that there is going to be a lot of emotion in that community." he said," in addition to the victims and the families in newtown, that his heart goes out to the police and the emergency services personnel that responded to deal with this, because this is going to take a toll on a lot of people." beth nimmo whose daughter was killed in the columbine high school mass shooting, she said today, "as far as the parents go, they're not going to know what hit them for a

.org. >> welcome to "communicators." helping to kick off the series is the former senator of the state of oregon, gordon smith. >> good to be back. >> senator smith, could you start by talking to us about how people watch television in the current day as, say, opposed to a few years ago? >> broadcasting is affected by that. we remain highly relevant because what we do is local, and as to those who want to get it the old-fashioned way, it is free, and yet, you have satellite, you have cable, and now you have the internet, through hulu or netflix, which are other ways to access television, so television remains highly relevant to the future. when you look at the top 100 programs that are watched, 90 of them are broadcast, -- content. i think the future is bright, indeed. -- 90 of them are broadcast content. we are a mobile society, and so the challenge is to make sure that we are on pads, computers, phones, as well as traditional viewing, now with a wonderful high-definition television screen. the other challenge we have is that spectrum is a finite resource, and others want that resource, and the

in newtown or a shopping mall in oregon or a temple in wisconsin or a movie theater in aurora or a street coroner chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods and these children are our children and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this regardless of the politics. >> pelley: the president was no more specific about what he meant by "meaningful action" but for some americans it means taking a look at gun control. correspondent nancy cordes tells us that the issue is just as contentious as ever. >> reporter: in lafayette park tonight, across from the white house, a small group of progun control demonstrators held a candlelight vigil. but on both ends of pennsylvania avenue, there was near silence on the issue. both the republican house speaker, john boehner, and the democratic leader, nancy pelosi, called today's tragedy "unspeakable" but made no mention of the guns used to carry out the brutal act. gun control, an issue so hotly debated in the 1990s, is rarely discussed seriously today. the tkpwapb on assault weapons was a
or steal them from a steal, such as in oregon earlier this week. >> reporter: and of course, as we come to understand, clint, in some context, exactly, what the motivation might have been. and you can talk to people who may have been through any of these shootings. they do want to know why. but it doesn't change anything or bring their loved ones back. but is there any information that we ought to know from this that will help us going forward? >> well, there is no test that i know of, chris, that we can give to somebody or differentiate, the next person who will be the next mass murderer. psychologists believe we can identify children who are at risk. and we can do that many times in grade school. i mean, i have always been an advocate of having counselors, mental health professionals, to help children when they're in grade schools to start the develop conflict resolution skills that are not built on violence like they see on television. >> but can i add to this very importantly, when you hear a report that this man may have had asperger syndrome. i worry about all the people who now t
is. and i believe these tragedies have taken place in nevada, in oregon, and wisconsin are waking america up. and we're looking at this issue now, and we want action. >> okay, thank you so much, chief johnson. larry johnson, thank you, sir, for joining us as well, and thank you cliff van zandt. and chris jansing, my colleague at msnbc. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz picks up msnbc's continuing coverage of the sandy hook elementary school shooting right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are tragedies in life that shake our souls and break our hearts. today the nation experienced one of those tragedies. every american will struggle to come to grips with what happened today in a small community in connecticut. sandy hook elementary school in the small community of about 27,000 residents was the site of a shooting rampage. at this hour we know 26 people at the school were shot and killed by a lone gunman. 20 of those deceased were children. surviving students and their parents said te
. an elementary school in newtown, a shopping mall in oregon, a house of worship in wisconsin, a movie theater in colorado. >> those comments a day after he made a plea to the white house where he said he was affected by the tragedy as the president and as a parent. a coalition of lawmakers including the new york city mayor has called on the president to send a bill to congress addressing gun violence. >> local churches are offering prayers for those stricken with grief. >> we will pray for the families. >> reporter: about a hundred people came together to find hope and comfort through prayer last night at the goss pell church in oakland. the pastor preempted the regular friday night service and called for people of faith to unite and stand together. >> realizing that when things happen all we have is each other. you know to hold each other up whether we are in california or concouldn't. >> children and adults stood in a circle, held hands and prayed for the families in connecticut struggling to come to terms with their grief and loss. other churches will be holding similar services this
this too many times, whether it is an elementary school in newtown or a shopping mall in oregon or a temple in wisconsin or a movie theater in aurora or a street coroner chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. >> the newtown police continued to update throughout the day and night. >> we will leave no stone unturned as we are looking at every facet off this investigation, whether it is the shooter or the victim, and we will look at everything, and we certainly will go in and out of state, and work with local law en s forment and federal agents and whatever we need to do to answer the questions as to what transpired here. >> this is a continuing and developing story, and for the very latest, let's go now to msnbc's chris jansing in n newtown, connecticut. hi, chris. >> well, we were expecting this news conference to happen two hours ago, but the delay is not surprisi surprising. i spoke at 7:00 to lieutenant vance who is the lead spokesman for the lead police here, and they are the lead investigators on the scene, and you can imagine with the n
this week, this shopping mall outside of portland, oregon. we heard from an emotional president obama and this is not the time for a full discussion about gun control is such a political hot button. we are asking michael yaki. what does this have to happen? when this nation will finally say that this is enough? >> many times when this nation has said that this is enough after the 20 07 massacre. the sheid temple and kabi giffords was nearly killed -- gabrielle giffords was nearly killed in arizona. congress had an opportunity then and did they let it expire. >>pam: that is a very important point. the assault weapons ban was the hallmark of legislation by our own, dianne feinstein. it was allowed to pass without being reconsidered what has to happen now? >> this tragedy. today is a day of mourning. however, the door is open today about taking meaningful action. that is a code word about thinking about gun control. he tried not to raise debt about the debate. and finally came to surface all along the third debate. >> please explain the po the nae association a. the nra, the organization
party. and we had a lovely time. our son, ivan, and his wife kendra, who are in oregon where they have a small farm tawld tipping tree farm. we wish they could be here today, our grandson carter, who is a proud member of the university of oregon marching band, the ducks, who served as an intern for me -- not at government expense, by the way, that was at our expense. and our little dog dakota, who has become sort of a mascot of the united states senate. brian williams when he did a show on a day in the life of senate concluded that program by calling dakota the 101st senator. and, you know, i think he will be missed perhaps more than i am as i leave the senate. in 1964 i came here, i sat up in the gallery, in fact, it was the gallery right up here. and i was 16 years old. and i watched a debate in the united states senate. it was on civil rights. hubert humphrey was leading that debate. and it so inspired me that i thought, you know, someday i'd like to be down on that floor and i would like to debate the great issues of the day and i would like to represent the people of north dakota.
on that statement irrespective. another tax happy democrat and his thoughts. congressman blumenhour of oregon wrote a bill how government can tax cars by the mile. this idea, and i don't want to say it's stupid, but it is, and it's not even original. a mileage tax program was proposed twice last year. that's how bad that one is. the last spot on the list goes to espn commentator rob parker, the former detroit news coal imu.s. yesterday questioned the blackness of washington red skins robert griffin iii claiming he was not authentic. >> i keep hearing things, we all know he has a white fiance, talk about he's a republican. he's not really, okay. he's black, does the thing, but he's not really down with the cause. he's not one of us. he's kind of black. he's in the -- he's not really, like, the guy you want to hang out because he's off to something else. lou: espn suspended parker indefinitely, and to be honest with you, i think we would miss him, don't you? ambassador rice questioning contributics about false statements on benghazi, the a-team takes it up and more. doug shone, angela, join us next.
by democrats and republicans alike this year after the shooting in colorado, more recently last week in oregon. if it is not gun control, then what about mental health and troubled youths who decide to do this? could congress discuss this issue a denture a more serious way? >> we need to ask those questions. we need to search for the answers. that is part of what we can do a in congress. we can hold the hearings and dig further and try to better understand exactly what happened and what drives individuals to take the lives of the innocents this way. it is very important we ask those questions, get the answers so we can prevent these types of situations from happening. >> "newsmakers" this sunday at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. >> next, your calls and comments on "washington journal." than a discussion on the future of syria. a forum of the impact of the latino population in future elections. >> i wanted to explain how this totalitarianism happens. we do know the story of the cold war. we know the documents. we have seen the archives that describe relationships between stalin, ch
, oregon. halfway through the second act, at long last, george shows up and the fractured city hall backdrop begins to fill with floating lights outlining the golden gate bridge and we hear tony bennett sing his legendary recording of "i left my heart in san francisco." and then the character of george, sometimes mouthing the words, sometimes singing them quietly, moves towards john without looking, for he cannot look at his son. and he touches john's heart and then he moves away towards the city hall of john's memory and john set the stairs in the way that george did, cocky and sexy, cruel as all get out. and then the song ends. and i notice the woman sitting next to me crying. and after the play is over, after the standing ovation of tony's brave and beautiful
